Constitution Life Syrup has Produced a Revolution
What may seem almost incredible is, that many
diseases lutberto considered hopelessly incurable
are frequently cured in a few days or weeks ; and
we cheerfully invite the investigations of the libe
ral minded and scientific to cures which have no
parallel at the present day.
During tue past nve years we have contended
with obstacles and overcome opposition as hercu
lean as were evei encountered by any reformers.
Rapidity of Cure.
Some say, " Your cures are too quick." while
others doubt their permanence, and think that
diseases can only be cured bv the " slow, remu
nerative process of Nature." -
This is our reply : In health, the body, like a
well-balanced scale, is in a state of equilibrium.
But when, from any cause, down iroes one side of
the scale, we have the effect of disease. What is
requisite, is to restore the normal balance of the
